Good times for VR?
January 18th 2013, 00:53 CET by TreeFrog

If you're anything like me (protip: don't be anything like me), you'll remember the short-lived VR craze with some hipster-grade ironic nostalgia, but mostly with disappointment. William Gibson had promised us digital otherworlds over a decade ago, and all we got was The Lawnmower Man. And that wasn't even a documentary, people!

But! Now some punk called Palmer Luckey, who has the temerity to be only 20 years old, is all like "hey, here's this Oculus Rift VR headset I just crapped out this morning and BTW it's the most awesome shit you peasants have ever seen" AND HE'S NOT WRONG.

AND! On top of that we have the Leap Motion guys and their millimetre-precision doodad taking a big enough crap on the Kinect that Asus are offering aforementioned doodad as an option with their PCs. We'll ignore the oh-so-90s Best Buy retail exclusivity.

Interesting times.

My experience has been that a decade of random CS projects helps.

But yeah, Big data and having some sensibility when it comes to parallelism and functional programming, those are the areas to learn in.

World War Z was preeetty silly/mediocre.

The movie that is, the book is great.

Brad Pitt was the star of the first dream I had that had Dark Souls crossover:

I had a remote control and I was mapping some kind of spellthrow to it. Just as I got it to work by opening a crevasse where it is pointed, and then Brad Pitt walked around the corner, and then he fell. Boom! lol, wake.

It's coming back, you know it. We can feel it. Touch my rocket! TOUCH IT!


Mind you, we could kickstart it overnight, but, no one has explained to me why it is the way it is now, so until someone does, it must remain.

Okay, you know what? None of you have touched my rocket yet. I'm going to take steps. I may even write a topic.

I find it hard to believe that those in reach, do not care, and I find it hard to believe that the remaining is 60%. I do not suppose it could be. I support a different number.

FIVE. Also, a topic is within conception, but I think you will all notice, I'm not on the homepage

And, once again, I was NOT Andy. I think that would be obvious. I never understood posts, can lose sunglasses

No one ever revealed that to me. It was my thought that Andy was actional. Amazingly, fascinatingly, Andy has been largely unreachable, ever since Morn wanted to do something absurd. These plain cover stories do not allow for nuanced bullshit.

I wrote that myself, and I am not German fluent. Esther would you please suggest that someone do something absurd? Esther... oh, wait, fucking A, she does not even see it.

Almost at the halfway point now. I'll be threatening to leave, soon enough to please the few bigots and pre-verts from being burned at the stake. Incidentally, did any of you ever make the schedule of halts and returns? IS THERE a schedule?

I think it is just simpler to room with Hendrik. Also, so pissed, I was going to find you in Germany, it would have been so delightful.

Heads will roll. Also, seriously, were any of you discussing the 12th 9/11 anniversary, at all? I gave you all plenty of time, after all.

Illuminati signatures, you dig. It is not exactly something that we can utilize. We should pour it on.
